No, and no. You just need to show enough money to pay your fees and living costs, which by your own calculation could be £21,380.6pandn21 wrote:So I was wondering if the following assumptions I have are correct.
1. I will have to show that I have enough maintenance costs for the period of 9 months and since I am outside London, if I apply before November 12 2015, it will be 7,380 GBP per month [9,135 after]
2. I will need to show that I have full fees for the first year [which is about 12-14000 GBP]
3. I won't need to do IELTS since I have completed a degree from a UK university
Hence, if I were to show about 20,000 GBP; I presume it should fulfil the requirement or will it be safer to show the full fee amount (for 3 years)?
